RESEARCH RESTART UNDERWAY
The Faculty of Medicine is ramping up non-COVID-19 research across its on-campus and off-campus locations, with as much activity as is possible while keeping health and safety concerns first and foremost. The University has developed guidelines for this reactivation of research, and the Faculty must remain in sync with these, as well as provincial guidelines.
In Phase 1 of the research restart, which is in effect from June 4, 2020 until the University notifies the Faculty otherwise, total lab personnel on-site, including the principal investigator, must not exceed 20% of pre-COVID complement at any one point in time. Physical distancing protocols are in effect (see FAQs).
In the face of a continuously evolving situation, we know we must remain agile and responsive. Please ensure that all relevant information is disseminated to applicable research team members and that the University’s guidance is followed. Faculty members have a responsibility to their staff, trainees, and research participants to stay informed of the current University and research updates:
